The Patent Shaft and Axeltree Company Est 1940


NOTE: Forthcoming Exhibition and Re-Union

Wednesbury Museum & Art Gallary


The Re-Union:
The next re-union for former Patent shaft workers is being planned and to hopefully celebrate the resiting of the Patent Shaft Gates to the Round about by the new Bus Station on the Holihead Road. There will also be an exhibition at the Wednesbury Museum & Art Gallery.

It has been suggested by the organisers that a regular re-union should be arranged and was agreed by everyone in attendance at the last meeting, however as we know these things take time to organise and at the end of the day volunteers are always needed so anyone prepared to help please contact.



Our history is being eroded just like these gates, please help me to restore these gates and the history they stand for. Well it looks like we have saved the gates and thanks to everyone that helped.

If you have any comments or maybe a bit of history about the Patent Shaft then please email to the address below. I will endeavour with your help to restore these gates and hopefully the memories they represented.
